Betty Crocker Starlight Yellow Cake

I've been wanting to make a yellow cake from scratch for awhile but never seem to have all of the ingredients ready or just not feeling like baking. Well last night all the stars were in alignment! With Marcus creaming the butter we assembled our Starlight Yellow Cake!

And it wasn't as hard as we thought! I would highly recommend this recipe for the beginner.

The apartment smelled wonderful! And the cake taste delicious! No Marcus! I'm not burning a Buttercream Yankee Candle!

I'm still waiting for our replacement camera so I'll share cake photos from Pinterest!

Starlight Yellow Cake ~

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened

1 1/4 cups milk

3 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 large eggs

1.) Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 2 round pans with margarine; lightly flour.
2.) Beat all ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pans.

3.) Bake 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes our clean or until cake springs back then touched lightly in center. Cool rounds 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

4.) I used a 9x13 pan 35 to 40 minutes. If you're using 9 inch pans 25-30 minutes
